Name:  Louisa Garbo

Status: WMO Fellow Candidate

Entry Date: 01/11/2018

City / Country: Washington / USA

Field of Expertise: Law and Conflict Resolution

Expertise / Research: I am a land use planner by trade, and am an accredited LEED Green Associate. I strive to build a socially, economically and environmentally sustainable community by working with the local communities throughout my career. I advocate a creative and innovative problem-solving approach to deal with land use development issues. I enjoy mentoring my staff on negotiation, conflict resolution, emotional intelligence and community-building, skills that are necessary to serve the diverse community, often with competing interests. Aside from being a planner, my passion in conflict resolution has led me to serve for four years as a pro bono Mediator and a Hearing Officer at the Maricopa County Justice Court in Phoenix, Arizona. I subsequently became a certified mediator with ADR Institute of Canada. I have a Master’s Degree in City Planning, a Juris Doctor, and a Master’s Degree in Negotiation, Conflict Resolution, and Peacebuilding. I am currently pursuing a Doctor of Philosophy in Mediation and Conflict Resolution through Euclid University – a treaty university with the United Nations, my particular focus is on cross-border land use development conflicts.

Your Professional Vision: I hope to connect with peers in the conflict resolution and mediation fields, learn from their experiences, collaborate with them, and to someday participate in activities where I could make a difference by bringing peace or resolutions to the community I live in.
